    Accounts Payable Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bimeda (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Few weeks ago a staffing company reached out to me regarding a job opportunity in Oakbrook Terrace for the position of AP Specialist. The staffing agency told me that the HR manager was really impressed with my background & wanted me to come in for an interview asap. I went in for an interview the next day. The interview went for over an hour & it went really well. We shared some incidents with each other. Then I was asked one of the basic questions: "Where do you see yourself in 10 to 15 years"? I answered: "Hopefully having my own business because my dad had his own business for over 30 years in India so that inspired me to have my own business" I further added- "I want to do something for my parents, they are getting old & doing labor jobs for the past 5 years & few years later when I have my own business I can give them a nice life". The next day I got informed by the staffing agency that I wasn't given the job. They said that the manager thought that I was there just for the money & not for the job. Just from what I said about my long-term goals, this was her judgement. I was sad at first but now I feel sorry for people like this.
